$ killall pppd
from an xterm or whatever commandline interface your GIDE provides that is
Should work if the permissions are right. If not, make yourself a member
of the group that pppd belongs to, as root, with adduser.
On my Debian system, that would be:
# adduser username dip
The -v option to killall will give more details about what's going on.
If it works, alias the command to "k", after checking if the name has
been taken with:
$ type k
This goes in your ~/.bashrc:
alias k='killall pppd'
$ source ~/.bashrc
